Spicy and Citrusy, there is a very interesting tasting Kolsh. This is a very good beer and I recommend it to everyone.

Just like advertised, reminds me of the original Kölsch from Cologne. Tastes pretty great actually

Bottle Pours a clear bright light golden with a large white fizzy head. Aroma is a sweet light grain. Honey and german/belgian yeat notes. Flavor is consistant. A smooth light woody flavor. Soft and slifhtly sweet. Very drinkable. (Sorry Ontario...)
Feel is a little chalky which surprised me for its crystal clear appearance.
Plain and pleasant.
Thanks Buck Dich for the bottle.

Of what aroma there is, grassy and flowery hints come through; looks like bud light; sweet slightly tart flavor with some lightly spiced hopping, somewhat grainy and dry in the finish, thin and watery body without being very "drinkable".

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thick foamy head. Pale golden in color and well hopped. Hop bitterness is high. Hop aroma and flavor very evident. Medium-bodied beer.
I think they stopped making this brew. I haven’t seen it in quite some time, though I haven’t looked for it.

Beautiful pour. Golden with a thick head.
Lacing the whole way down the glass as you drink.
Noticeable hoppiness, but far from overwhelming, just right i’d say.
Very crisp, & clean, finishes dry.

12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy rich gold with a big diminishing head and nice lacing...nose grassy and bready with a touch of caramel...moderately sour-bitter body, dry herbal hoppy late qualities, quite dry with no sweetness but very quaffable, just a touch too thin but otherwise a very nice, and surprising, kolsch for my first Utah beer.

I didn’t know until after I opened this that it was a Utah beer--my first. I thought it was Unita, New York--oops! Quite a surprise to find this for sale in Minnesota. And, you know, it wasn’t half bad. Moderately hazy yellow with a clinging white head. Dry, hoppy, grassy aroma. Lilting, frothy palate. Good hop edge with a slight bitter finish, turning metallic in the very late finish. All told, not a bad beer--a beer Utah can be proud of, even if most of Utah won’t touch the stuff.

Cloudy golden in color with a small white head. Smells bready. Flavos is lighty, tangy, and lightly fruited with lemon. Kinda plain and ordinary.

Very light color. There is some fruit in the aroma and the taste. Some sweetness and mild hop bitterness. Smooth.
